What advice do you have for incoming interns?

Your intern year will include exposure to a wide array of sub-specialties within surgery. Keep an open mind and approach each rotation as if it will be your own specialty one day to get the most out of it. You may be surprised what peaks your interest!

What do you like best about living in Seattle?

The Pacific Northwest is the most beautiful place in the world. The proximity of Seattle to skiing, hiking, and (cold water) surfing beaches is close enough so that study breaks can be spent doing something awesome! Seattle is also home to some amazing restaurants and entertainment venues, it is a great place live.
